Obituary of Gary Davis

Entered into rest on August 15, 2017, Gary Kenneth William Davis, age 72, of Smiths Falls ON, where he lived with his beloved partner, Eleanor Davies. Gary was born in Smiths Falls where he remained deeply rooted for the majority of his life. He was beloved brother to Betty Sutherland of Westport, and dedicated father to Ashley Davis of Picton, Melissa Davis of Toronto, and Christine (Richard) Snider of Kitchener. Gary is survived by his 7 grandchildren, his nephews Scott (Sheryl) and Shawn (Audrey) Lowry, cousins, nieces, extended family, friends and neighbours and his devoted doggie, Buddy. He was predeceased by his parents, Kenneth and Blanche Davis, and brother-in-law, John Sutherland.

To all, he will be remembered as a man of kindness, warmth and unflinching loyalty. His heart, expansive. A quiet observer, he never missed a social event, but preferred to watch the fun from the sidelines. The consummate wheeler and dealer, his friends remember fondly his knack for finding deals at local auctions, only to sell the same piece later that day for a profit. He had an eye for beauty and quality, ever apparent in his chosen surroundings and friendships.

A private family interment will be held at St. Paul’s Anglican Cemetery, Westport, Ontario, Saturday September 2, at 2PM. Friends may offer condolences at a remembrance reception being held at The Cove, Westport Ontario, Saturday September 2, at 3PM. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the charity of one's choice are appreciated.  Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Lannin Funeral Home, Smiths Falls, Ontario.  Online condolences available at www.lannin.ca
